Because They Are So Desperate To Look Smart

They look stupider than ever! Read this. It pretty much makes the point. Here are some of the comments that point out the whole purpose in ballyhooing degraded weapons of mass destruction. Nothing like we were told. If this was a signifigant find why would the administration have "hidden" the proof? It is truly non-sensical.

Santorum and Fox and the righty bloggers don’t have to believe any of this nonsense — they just have to send a story out that will, when it’s retold at the backyard barbecue over the 4th, be rendered as follows: “See, that’s where you’re wrong, my liberal friend. The WMDs were found. They were there. You think they weren’t found because the liberal media and the America-hating Democrats in Congress told you they weren’t. They’re the real liars. Thank God for the GOP.”

This is not stupidity, this is intentional reconstruction of the narrative, and it takes great effort. Stupidity, by comparison, is very easy. These people choose to rewrite history in their own minds. They choose to see these obsolete, junked chemical detrius as proof that Bush Was Right, America Was Honest, America Acted in Self-Defense, and so on. The Narrative Was Right.
This sort of thing lends a lot of credence to the
quote from unidentified sources about how the Bush Administration {sic} believes it can rewrite reality…
The aide said that guys like me were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. “That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors… and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
…and, if you don’t like the way you actually performed when confronted with history — hey, create your own reality ! You’ve got a second chance ! In your own minds, anyway. Note the use of the word “We”, implying that others in the White House believe that (a) America is an Empire, and (b) The White House can modify reality in any way it wishes.

History is written by the victors. They intend to be those victors. If they crush us, as they fully intend to, all this will be the truth, as far as anyone will be able to determine.

The DOD (!) debunked Santorum’s little story yesterday. Loudly and clearly.
And the righties are still doing a jig? Those rubes will believe anything that is handed them. Worse, they’ll choose to believe anything that may appear to support their demented and delusional view of the world.
What a bunch of freaks!

We are dealing with people with no standards of truth or the American way!

By the way, I just saw where they raised the enlistment age to 42 so if you are thinking it's a valid effort and you want to help your opportunity to do that just increased. I am sure they would love to have you.
